The Milwaukee Bucks open the regular season tonight when they face the Celtics at TD Garden in Boston.
Boston lost Ray Allen in free agency to Miami, but the Celtics have added the likes of Jason Terry, Courtney Lee and Leandro Barbosa. Both Terry and Barbosa are former NBA Sixth Man of the Year award winners.
This is a big year for Bucks coach Scott Skiles and General Manager John Hammond, both of whom are in the last year of their contracts. Both could be in jeopardy if the Bucks don’t make a return trip into the postseason.
The Celtics have won 14 of the last 17 games played between the two teams.
Following tonight’s opener, the Bucks return home to host Cleveland on Saturday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
